“I am incredibly honored to receive the Al Smith Fellowship. Not only will it allow me to pursue some exciting, ambitious projects that I have only dreamed of being able to complete, but to have my name counted among the tremendous artists that have come before me is truly humbling,” said Gotlib, a composer of experimental chamber and electronic music. “I hope, through the work this grant allows me to do, to continue in the tradition of the artists who have helped make Kentucky such a uniquely vibrant place in the creative arts.”

Congratulations!
